Clematis Snow Queen Type II shares the trellis with Dr. Ruppel. I like to plant more than one clematis on many of my trellises.
Clematis Ville de Lyon is a Type III that I have finally begun treating like a Type II to get it to bloom. I did not cut it down this year and voila lots of buds and blooms.
I am giving the Sunpatiens a try this year, saw them last year at Ball Horticultural Test Gardens and was impressed at how well they did out in the open with intense sun.
I have destressed my containers this year with less in them and some simple ones with only a couple of plants, some tropicals and you won't believe it some black. I don't do black in the garden but somehow black jumped out at me this year for the containers.
Black leaves, more black to see when I complete the container!
Coleus Sedona and Sweet Potato Vine Black Heart
Oxalis Molten Lava
The Nemesia will not last through the heat in our area.
The radish tops have grown back from the rabbit forage.
I am working on my containers, definitely downsizing in regard to number of containers and number of plants in each container. Our climate has become so hot in the summer that multiple containers are too labor intensive. I still have a lot but less than last year!
